“Thomas Aquinas was the Problem; the Reformation was the Solution”

Triablogue:

“Where was your Church before Aquinas”

St-thomas-aquinasEver since the Reformation, Roman Catholics have been fond of asking, “Where was your Church before the Reformation”. Protestants have a good reply to that: “Where was your Church before Aquinas”…

Roman Catholics claim that Martin Luther was the innovator, but in reality, Thomas Aquinas was a far more extensive innovator than Luther ever was. The problem was, “The Church of Rome” liked what Aquinas had to say, and they canonized it.

The Reformers sought to roll back many of the changes that Aquinas put into place. And in doing so, they relied on earlier traditions than did Aquinas…

The Door Is The Catholic Church

It 100 0315

“He who does not enter by the door of the fold shall not have salvation. The door of the fold is the Catholic Church and union with the Head who represents Jesus Christ.”

If He Abandons The See Of Peter

Is The Mass That Bad?

John Bradford:

First, the mass is a most subtle and pernicious enemy against Christ, and that double, namely, against his priesthood and against his sacrifice. His priesthood is an everlasting priesthood, and such an one as cannot go to another. But the mass utterly puts him out of place, as though he were dead for ever; and so God is forsworn which said Christ should be ‘a priest for ever,’ and Paul lieth which affirmeth Christ to live, and to be ‘on the right hand’ of the Father for us, that by him ‘we may come to the throne of grace to find mercy to help us in our need:’ for, if these be true as they be most true, the mass priests are to be put down: for, if they be ‘of the order of Aaron,’ then resume they that which Christ hath abolished; if they be ‘of the order of Melchisedec,’ then be they Christ’s. Other orders of priests I read none, save that which all Christians be, to offer up themselves to God and other spiritual sacrifices by Christ, and the order of ‘priests of Baal,’ whose successors indeed the massers be (from The Writings of John Bradford, volume 2, pp. 312-313). ​

When I Do It, Christ Must Obey

Adoration du Saint Sacrement à l'Eglise du Sacré-Coeur de Monaco

“I never invite an angel down from heaven to hear mass here. The is not the place for angels. The only person in heaven I ever ask to come down here is Jesus Christ, and Him I command to come down. He has to come when I bid him. I took bread in my fingers this morning and said: ‘This is the body and blood of Jesus Christ’, and He had to come down. This is one of the things He must do. He must come down every time I say mass at my bidding….I do it in obedience, reverence, homage, and adoration, but I do it, and when I do it, Christ must obey.”

As if by an Enchanter’s Wand

Peasant art in Sweden, Lapland and Iceland (1910) (14593636387)“Mr. Kohl, a fair and very impartial writer, at least, upon Ireland, and who is often quoted by the great agitator, O’Connell, says,—in passing from that part of the country, where the majority of the inhabitants profess the Roman Catholic religion to that in which the great bulk of the population are Protestants or Presbyterians,—”On the other side of these miserable hills, whose inhabitants are years before they can afford to get the holes mended in their potatoe kettles, (the most important article of furniture in an Irish cabin,) the territory of Leinster and that of Munster begins. The coach rattled over the boundary line, and all at once we seemed to have entered a new world. I am not in the slightest degree exaggerating when I say, that everything was as suddenly changed as if by an enchanter’s wand. The dirty cabins by the road side were succeeded by neat, pretty cottages; well cultivated fields and shady trees met the eye on every side. At first I could scarcely believe my own eyes, and thought the change must be merely local, caused by particular management of that particular state, but the improvement lasted, and continued to show me that I was among a totally different people, the Scottish settlers, and the industrious Presbyterians.””

Tradition is More Clear and Safe

Hottinger Volksblatt 1878 057 Bild1

“Like two sacred rivers flowing from paradise, the Bible and divine tradition contain the word of God, the precious gems of revealed truths. Though these two divine streams are in themselves, on account of their divine origin, of equal sacredness, and are both full of revealed truths, still of the two, tradition is to us more clear and safe.”

Reject the Holy Scriptures
